Can para units be dropped into a "dot" hex?

Yes, it was largely a trial and error process for supply drops, which improved steadily as time went by an they found out what worked, what didn't. In a famous episode of "I luv those Ozzers" they even figured out ways to break down Arty and transport a few by air.

is it possible to deliver supply via air to units in:

A) non base hex

Yes, it is possible, but you won't get very much return for your investment. Lots of turns they seem not to fly.


There also seems to be some kind of restriction limiting such missions to units/hexes that cannot be reached via "normal" overland supply. I've had a situation for some time where Allied units one hex off the Burma rail lines were fighting. Supplies were only trickling in to them so I tried to set transports to airlift supplies to them but they refused to fly. And I'm sure they were not flying and there was no LRCAP. Tried for almost a game month before giving up.



i think there is a glitch here - i had a similar problem except the planes WOULD fly as long as there was no enemy in the hex. The LCU was accumulating supplies, but as soon as the enemy moved in, no more supplies arrived... however, the air transports apparently DID keep flying, as their fatigue never did go down as long as i had the mission active.

I do.


There were flying tanks... The USSR was developing them in the 1930s, and the UK had a design during WWII. Later, there were the Ontos and the Sheridan--although the Sheridan turned out to be a PoS.

Lots of folks had developed plans for "flying tanks" - the USSR is the only one that got to a prototype (afaik)
